Houston Wildlife- Double Crested Cormorant

This week’s search for Houston’s hidden wildlife populations takes us back to Hermann Park.  According to Texas Parks and Wildlife the Double Crested Cormorant seen here is simply a winter visitor. Come the spring it will head northwards towards Alaska and Canada where it spends its breeding season. If you’re interested in getting out and seeing Double Crested Cormorants along with a variety of other waterfowl get on down to Hermann Park.

Also, in case you’ve missed the reports, a pair of Bald Eagles were seen in Hermann Park in the last week. I’ve not seen them myself but certainly hope to.

 Double Crested Cormorant (Phalacrocorax auritus) rests for a moment in a tree above the main lake in Houston's Hermann Park.
